Honor Mission
Charles “Charlie” T. May, Veteran
USA – WWII
Racine, Wisconsin – 07-14-18

ABOUT THE MISSION:

Charles T. “Charlie” May, age 95, passed away in Crivitz, WI on Wednesday evening, July 4, 2018.  Charlie was born in Burlington, WI on April 1, 1923 to the late Henry and Marie May.  He faithfully served our country with the United States Army in WWII from 1942-46.  Proudly, he annually wore his original uniform to his church Veterans Day services.
Charlie was a likeable jokester. Charlie heard the call to service in WWII, enlisted in the U.S. Army and was a forward artillery spotter, attaining the rank of Corporal.  He came home with the All-American dream of raising a family and owning a Harley-Davidson.  He bought his bike and road it until he was 91 and his family will be bringing it to the service.  Bikes are requested and encouraged.
